Two of Joe Bruno’s fiction books are for sale today in one boxed set for only $1.99. The normal price is $4.99. This sale will continue until Wednesday, April 2.
The first one is “Snakeheads,” which are Chinese gangsters who smuggle poor Chinese from the mainland of China into the United States.
Boxed Set description: “Since the start of the 20th Century, the Italians and Chinese in the Little Italy/Chinatown area of New York City have endured an uneasy truce.
In the first three quarters of the century, the Italians ruled the neighborhood with an iron fist. But starting in the 1970’s, the dynamics began to change, as Italians moved out of the neighborhood, and droves of Chinese flowed into Chinatown from China; some illegally.
“Snakeheads” is a taut-drama in screenplay form, and “Find Big Fat Fanny Fast” is a comedy/satire novel.
Although both have different tones and textures; they have one thing in common: both take place in New York City’s Chinatown/Little Italy, and both display the inner fighting between the Italian mob and the Chinese gangs to control the profits from the neighborhood’s illegal activities: gambling and drugs.”
